Caramel is a beige to dark brown confectionery product made by heating a variety of sugars at the correct temperatures. It can be used as a flavoring in puddings and desserts, as a filling in bonbons, or as a topping for ice cream and custard. The process of caramelization consists of heating sugar slowly to around 340 degrees Fahrenheit. As the sugar heats, the molecules break down and re form into compounds with a characteristic color and flavor. A variety of candies, desserts, and confections are made with caramel such as brittles, nougats, pralines, and caramel apples. Ice creams are sometimes flavored with or contain swirls of caramel.

Typical ingredients for cake can include flour, sugar, eggs, and butter or oil, with some recipes also requiring additional liquid most often milk or water, and leavening agents (such as yeast or baking powder). Common additional flavourings include dried, candied or fresh fruit, nuts, cocoa or extracts, and numerous substitutions for the primary ingredients are possible.
